Fernetta Adam dies in Twin Falls
Fernetta Marie Adam, 82, passed away peacefully at the Twin Falls Care Center in Twin Falls, Idaho, on Feb. 6, 2013.
Fernetta was born Feb. 5, 1931, to John and Anna Pleinis of McLaughlin. She attended McLaughlin High School and after graduation worked at Hatch’s Grocery Store until she met her sweetheart, Reinhold Adam. They were married Oct. 26, 1951, in McLaughlin and moved to Roscoe where Reiny was employed. They moved to Aberdeen for a short time and then to Bellflower and Compton, Calif. Fernetta was employed with a catering company while in Compton. Reiny retired and they moved to Twin Falls, where she remained until the time of her death.
She loved cooking and working with food so all her family and relatives could enjoy the fruits of her labor. Fernetta loved entertaining and welcomed anyone into her home with a great meal.
Her greatest pleasure was having her children and family and friends around her. She was always the caretaker and made everyone feel at “home,” especially her children and grandchildren.
When Reiny and Fernetta would come home to South Dakota, they made sure they visited with all her family and friends. She especially enjoyed dancing and listening to the music of her brother’s band, “The West River Wranglers.”
Fernetta will be remembered for always having a smile and taking the time to visit with everyone she met. She had a heart of gold.
Now she is home in heaven with her husband, Reiny; parents, John and Anna Pleinis; twin daughters, Cheryl and Carol; daughter, Karen; and her brother, Myren Pleinis. She will be missed by all of her family and we are glad that now she can rest and be taken care of by her father in heaven.
Fernetta is survived by her sons, Virgil of Twin Falls and Stanley of California; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and seven sisters and four brothers.
A celebration of Fernetta’s life was held as a graveside service on Feb. 14, 2013, at Rock Creek Veteran’s Cemetery in Twin Falls under the direction of White Mortuary and Crematory, Chapel by the Park.
